Video Tutorial

Your WordPress Glossary Terms can be created and edited using the WordPress editor, just like any other post on your site. They can include images, videos, and generally any HTML content.

The  term title is the word or phrase which, when found on the post/page, would display the tooltip with the definition and link to the Term Page or any other custom links according to the settings that you define.

Term descriptions can be long or short. If you want to limit the amount of the description which shows inside the tooltip you can set this in Settings → Tooltip:
